Latest News
The Unlimited National Bangers take centre stage at Tullyroan Oval this Saturday night (August 24th) with the Kings of Krash team event set to be an exciting encounter.

Over twenty cars are currently booked in to appear, with Bad Company and Team Sour set to start as favourites for the crown. Sometimes being a fancied runner can attract some unwanted attention, and in the world of Banger racing that means the others could well be going all out to destroy the big names! Local favourites Team Buckle, TBG, Krash Krew, The Mob and Eight Eyes will also be in action over two heats, a final and the crowd pleasing Destruction Derby where the last car moving wins! The overall teams title will be decided on points across all four races.

The stars of the 2.0 Hot Rods will remember one of their own as they contest The Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy. The annual event is sure to be hotly contested, with Adam Best a huge contender after his final win last time out. Stuart Cochrane, Ryan McClure, Conor Hughes and Allen Cherry will also be keen to get their hands on what is one of the prettiest trophies in oval racing.

The DMC Race Promotions Thunder Rods will be joined by some visitors from Tipperary Raceway's Premier Rods as they contest their annual challenge event. Jason Darragh was a winner at Aghadowey just a week ago and will be keen for more silverware, whilst James Goldie, Andrew McLean, Davy Gurney, David Wilson and William Donnell will also be keen to get amongst the major places. Andrew Burke leads the Premier Rods into action and will be keen for a good result. Jerome Doherty was the final winner at Tipperary in June when they two classes last raced together, and it was such a success that the Thunder Rods have been invited to Tipperary once again on Lightning Rods World Final weekend in October.

The all action ProStocks will be competing in the Grand Final of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series, with the feature race lined up in series order after the two heats. Star man Steven Haugh currently tops the standings ahead of Dylan Booth, but watch out for British Champion Dan Shannon and Joe Largey to name a few.

The young aces in their Ninja Karts complete the line up, with Max Hobson and Leyton Hughes the lads to watch. Leyton is fresh from a hat-trick of wins at lochgelly in Scotland last weekend and he will be keen to land even more trophies on his home circuit.

The first race of the meeting, kindly sponsored by Cherry Pipes and Ray McGrath Transport, blasts of the line at 6.30pm.

The National Hot Rods raced back into World Series action at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night with some excellent racing on show all evening, and it was Portadown’s Adam Heatrick who kicked off his campaign in fine style with a hat-trick of victories in the opening round of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. The Stock Rods King of Aghadowey was a closely fought event which fell to form man Derek McMillan from Kells, whilst Dublin’s Deano McGrath was victorious in the Rookie Bangers Ulster Championship. The other feature race winners at the Getty Precision Engineering sponsored event were Dungannon’s Ally Neill (Lightning Rods), Rasharkin’s Jason Darragh (Thunder Rods) and Tullyroan’s Davy McCall in the Classic Hot Rods.

Despite some regulars missing from the grid, there were still fifteen National Hot Rods on show for the opening round of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. After major engine problems towards the end of the last campaign, Adam Heatrick found himself in the yellow grade and he easily took the opening win of the night over a racy looking Derek Martin who had scythed through the field from the red grade. An early yellow flag in heat two when Podge McQuaid spun gave things a different look, as the field was now bunched up behind the leading Heatrick car. Adam and recently crowned NHRPA Champion Glenn Bell then spent much of the remainder of the race side by side disputing the lead in a tremendous battle, with Heatrick just getting the nod on the line. Bell was great value in second ahead of Thomas Dilly and Jaimie McCurdy.
New for the 2019/2020 campaign are graded order starts in the finals, and that presented Heatrick with a lead early on that he wouldn’t lose as he completed a faultless hat-trick for the evening. A huge battle though was on for second, with Dilly fighting a tough rearguard action against the rest. Adam Hylands tried time and again on the tough outside line to demote Dilly, but Thomas was resolute in his defence. Derek Martin gamely tried the wide line time and again too, before Hylands produced a great move right at the death to snatch second. Heatrick was well down the road to the win by now, with Hylands, Dilly, John Christie and Bell filling the places.

Twenty two Stock Rods came under starter’s orders for their opening heat, with Derek McMillan pulling an opportune move on Curtis Greer to take the lead and the win ahead of Mick Rodgers and Robert McIlroy. Heat two saw Johny Gillespie out front early on before Shane McMillan got under him down the home straight to take victory over Marc Morrell and Micky McFall.
The final for the King of Aghadowey was another fraught and closely contested affair, with Derek McMillan edging clear early on. A huge battle for second brewed right throughout the race between Morrell, Shane McMillan, Gary Butler and Micky McFall. As Derek McMillan roared home to yet another title victory, Morell gamely held on for second ahead of McFall after a great battle amongst the pack.

The Rookie Bangers were on top form all evening, with some excellent action all around the raceway. Josh McKinstry led the opener before he hit trouble, opening the door for Limavady’s Josh Goligher to take the win over Deano McGrath. Tyler Goligher led much of the distance in heat two before Josh again avoided the carnage and blasted past on the last lap to take his second win of the night.
McKinstry led the early stages of the Ulster Championship final before the mechanical gremlins again forced him out. That opened the door for Dublin ace Deano McGrath to power through to the win over Josh Goliger and Paul O’Connor.

The opening Lightning Rods heat was arguably the race of the night, with a huge ten car scrap for the lead in the closing stages. Ronan McNally just held on to claim the win over Jordan Rochford by just 0.022 seconds in the closest of finishes, with James McKinney netting third. It was fraught in the main pack in heat two with a number of warnings and penalties handed down, but up front Ally Neill had cruised away to the win over Adam McCann and Martin O’Flaherty.
The final was once again all about Neill, as he quickly relegated McCann before building a huge lead out front. Ally took the win and the silverware to earn a rise to blue grade for the next meeting, finishing ahead of McKinney, Aaron Stewart and Tim Hazlett.

Close competitive action was the order of the day for the Thunder Rods as always, with Londonderry ace Davy Gurney racing home to the heat one win over Jerome Doherty and Jason Darragh. Heat two saw John Goligher claim the win, fighting a defensive battle to hold off the impressive George Esler and Darragh at the flag.
Two third places in the heats underlined Darragh’s pace during the evening, and he put that to good use to race home to victory in the Getty Precision Engineering sponsored final. Gurney kept him honest all the way home but just couldn’t get on terms, with Goligher, Esler and James Goldie next home.

The Classic Hot Rods rounded off the programme, with the Mk2 Escorts and Anglias rolling back the years to the early days of racing at the Aghadowey venue. Adrian Boyle was the first to show in the opener before the battling Anthony Morgan and Davy McCall raced past. McCall went on to take the victory ahead of Morgan and Boyle. Five times World Champion McCall wasted no time in hitting the front in heat two, before a caution was called for an unfortunate tangle which saw Morgan and Boyle in the turn two wall. McCall took the win over Paul Magee and Lawrence Doherty.
Magee played the hare in the final, with McCall running him down. Track promoter McCall swooped around the outside to take the win and the hat-trick for the evening ahead of Magee and Doherty.
